    Unhappy Hkeeper and 36415

    Promo: Code Books
    Hi, can somebody please let me know where can I found documentation stating that Healthkeeper insurance does not pay for venipuncture. The doctor I am coding continue to included this code 36415 in every HK pt. Should I remove this code from the fee slip and FYI Dr. code considered non-covered. But if I do this I need documentation. Please help!!

    Perhaps you should use 99000 instead of 36415. You might want to check with Healthkeepers and see if they want 99000 instead. I'm not sure, but I hope this helps!

    If you have their number, I'd call and find out what they can tell you. See if they have a website and some coverage policies they can refer you to.
